    Thundering snores, perhaps. Or at least very deep slow breaths.

    Such a picture of comfort and security.
    We like it.

    We’re soon going on a short camping trip and our TWO dogs want to be just like the Herd – they want a picket line! I love the snooze brigade!

  17. Priscilla on September 17, 2010 at 8:30 am

    Shhhhh, that’s what I can do here! Oops! did I wake you all up?

  18. Houndstooth on September 17, 2010 at 8:13 am

    That must have been quite a hike! That or they were pretending they didn’t know the Hu-Dad in those socks…

  19. Pamela on September 17, 2010 at 8:07 am

    Well, the herd is certainly not thundering here. I was wondering where they got their super husky energy stores.

  20. Khyra on September 17, 2010 at 1:20 am

    In solidarity, I’m with woo!
